(An Amazing) Week in Review

I’m extremely honored and touched to have been nominated in two categories for the 2012 Bloggies (I call them the Academy Awards of blogging). I’m nominated for Best Fashion or Beauty Blog, as well as Best Designed Blog. Considering I didn’t hire a designer to create my blog’s design (everything you see here is from scratch, by my tiny little brain, somehow), I’m totally freaking out overjoyed. I’m in great company, and it would be an absolute honor to have your vote. Voting ends February 24th, and it’s actually extremely easy to vote for your favorites. Click here to vote »

Pick your poison

I’ve also started a weekly newsletter – if you’re not interested in getting posts every day that they post, you can sign up for the weekend newsletter, which will highlight the week’s posts and include a little blurb about my thoughts from this week’s posts and events. I like to think of it as a “set it and forget it” type of email – you don’t get bothered but just once a week, and if you forget to stop by any week, this’ll help you determine if it’s worth visiting. 😉 (Of course, I hope you’ll think it is).

In case you missed it

Pink & Gold
This outfit post was one of my favorites so far – I just love jewel tones and gold together – they really pop in person and on screen. Check it out »

Brahmin Bag Giveaway
I was super excited when Brahmin sent me two of these lovely bags for Christmas–one to keep and one to give to a friend. Well, YOU guys are my friends and what better way to show my appreciation than to give it away to one of you! Enter now »

PSS Takes Over Buried Bauble
What fun this was! This week I picked out not one but FOUR buried baubles for the uber-popular $10 bargain that hits inboxes every Friday. My choices must have been pretty popular–the site crashed and Bauble Bar scrambled to get everything working again in record time. Check it out »

Our Engagement Shoot Preview
Kendi & Bryan Skeen (you may know Kendi from a blog she writes called Kendi Everyday…wink wink) shot our engagement photos this Monday and we are filled with anticipation at how they turned out. Here are the instagram photos of our shoot. Check it out »

8 Luxurious & Fashionable iPad Cases
Last but not least, I rounded up a handful of amazing, gorgeous, luxurious iPad cases. Admittedly, I don’t see the practicality of buying a case that costs more than the iPad it’s protecting, but there’s a forthcoming “Part 2” post that will feature wallet-friendly (but fashionable!) cases.

    I have to confess I’m always amaze how you can change/redesign your blog for the better. There is always a sweet surprise to the eye when I come back.
    You totally deserve that award. Wishing you luck!

    The newsletter is such a genius idea! Of course, I come here every time you post something new, but it’s smart for those who don’t use BlogLovin or RSS! 🙂
